- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed or shredded
- 1 cup frozen peas

- In a large pot, melt butter over medium high heat. Whisk in flour and allow to bubble and brown for a few minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk and chicken base.
- Stir frequently until the white sauce begins to simmer, and thicken slightly.
- Turn the heat down to medium low, and stir in sour cream and heavy cream and chicken.

- Simmer on low for a few more minutes until the peas are warmed through.
- Serve over warm biscuits, or in puff pastry shells and garnish with chives if desired.
